I have been using this phone for 6 weeks and these are my thoughts.
The camera quality is as good as most other 300k cameras when the pictures are transfered to PC, and are on a par with my k700i.
The CSTN screen is adequate but obviously not as good as TFT.
The reception is very good even with a micro aerial.
The ring quality is good but the volume of some of the poly tones can be slightly low and the vibration is not very strong.
The speakerphone quality can sometimes be very poor.
The interface is easy and straight-forward to navigate.
SMS messages can be tricky to write until you get used to it.
Battery life is average.
Memory is not expandable and can only store around 25-30 full size pictures.
Overall I think this phone is a very good buy especially at the price (I paid £49.99 from Virgin Mobile).
Seems as though Motorola does not want anyone to be aboe to transfer pictures from this phone to their computers. Everyone that I know with this phone is looking for the drivers for it and no one yet has said that they have been able to find them. I am VERY dissapointed in it becuase other than that I have nto complaits a nice phone.
Were do I get software for my Motorola V220 so that i can download pictures from my v220 to my computer any ideas
I've had the phone for a month or two - dropped it a few times on hardwood floors - no prob, it still seems to be "motorola" tough anyhow (in my experience), but kinda cheap in that its a lot of plastic instead of metal. oh well. for 60 or 70 bucks, (forget, there was a rebate too) i guess I cant complain considering i live in a very hilly area with a lot of mountain ranges and the reception used to totally stink before gsm. the camera is kinda lame, but oh well. google around the net, get Mobile Phone Tools software and other goodies out there, and then you can download nice free java games and cool pics to you 'puter and then upload to the phone (tricky, but simple once you figure it out - search for mobile phone tools v220 :-)
I recently purchased the v220 and i am traveling internationally and was wondering if anyone knows if i can plug the charger into a 240 outlet. I live in the US and we use 110 so i was wondering if the phone is capable of going internationally without a problem. thank you.
Hey i wont to buy this fone, and have found it for only £59.95 is this a good deal or not it looks pretty snarsay
PLEASE CAN SOMEONE TELL ME !
This phone is cheap! I got it a few months ago and its already broken. For some reason I cant see the screen. Ever since I got it i took good care of it and never dropped or messed it up to make the screen go blank. I can receive calls but dont know who is calling...the outside screen doesnt seem to work either. When it did work, everytime i had it on speaker i would get an annoying buzz that I and the person Im talking to can hear. And when i close the phone, i guess there is a spring in it because it feels like theres one. The camera isnt the best. If you're near light then you'll get clear photos. but in the dark and in dim lighting dont even bother. The limited memory allows me to store a few photos and names. The phone looks like a toy and the screen is tiny, and the game i had on it totally disappeared. The only thing i like about this phone is that the voice ringtones play awesome on this phone but other than that its cheap. I got this for free. If i had to buy this phone, then that would have been a big regret.
I just bought the v220 and now I need to find what software I need to download pics from the phone to my computer for storage. I did not buy the e-mail package from cingular so e-mail from phone is not an option. Anyone have any ideas????
I was wondering if you could tell me how to e-mail pictures from this phone? Is it possible....I can't get it figured out. I have USB Cable, and software, but when I loaded it into computer, it didn't work saying the phone has no reception. Any suggestions? Drop me a n e-mail! Thank you so very much!
jozette, yes you can. The one drawback is that they mus be stored in your phone, not your sim card. Scroll to the address book entry. Hit the "edit" softkey. change the option "store to:" and change it to "Phone". Once you do this, there's an option below that to assign a "ringer ID". That's the customizable ringtone.
Does anybody know if you can assign ringtones to people in your address book? Thanks.
I have boughten a faceplate and I have gotten the back on without a problem and I have gotten the faceplate off, but my face plate still doesn't fit because of the blue/black plate that I can't get off. Is there a way I can get this off? Or how would I get the flaceplate on? It won't snap down on the top over the blue plate. and its a full face plate.
Hi! I wonder i'm counting my money if i should buy v220 or not! Should I?? It's kind a s cheap her in Norway! Peace out! God Bless
I just got the v220 basically for the speakerphone and I needed to upgrade to a gsm phone, finally. Unfortunately unless you hold the phone w/i a foot of your ear you can't hear it. Also the vibe is so slight unless it's pushed up against your body you don't feel or notice it. This was another feature I needed. My Nokia 3360 had a strong vibrating alert and the ring volume was much stronger so I could here that better too. I only found one ringtone that I can hear decent enough when theres alot of background noise around. I'm planning on returning this phone and going back to my old one and old plan unless I can find a phone that's better for me. Stronger vibrate alert and speakerphone that's hearable.
